“Very nice hotel, but overcrowded beach and loud disco”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

The hotel itself is very nice and clean. Check-in was smooth and fast although we arrived before official check-in time. There are very nice swimming pools with easy slope so even small children could go easy to the water and play there. The food was very good as well and everybody should be able to find what they like. There are several activities organized by hotel animators. For example our children really liked nice mini-disco (every evening except of Saturday). Although hotel doesn't have children playground there are some children attraction at the beach (10-15 kuna/10 minutes).

The park lot was protected by fence (parking cost hotel guests 40 kuna/day). The advantage was free public wifi with strong signal accessible in the room (building B oriented to the see).

The main problems are related to the surrounding of the hotel. The beach (~80 meters from the pool) was very overcrowded and rather dirty. The music at the beach was very disturbing. To hear loud disco everyday ~12 hours was exhausting. The windows at the hotel rooms have good acoustic isolation, however still the music can be an issue for some people.

The hotel is quite nice, with a large swimming pool and good facilities. But when you hear AND FEEL the very loud music from the club on the beach your relaxing vacation is gone.

The music is the modern dance music with a very distinct bass that is both felt and heard even inside the room with the terrase door closed! It got to our nerves and it went on every day and night.

As if that was not enough the music from the hotel it self was competing with the noise level as the restaurant/cafe played loud music, so did the pool bar and to top,it all then very loud music was also played every time the hotel entertainment went on with pool aerobic etc.

Sitting in between the different noise sources you heard all the different music at the same time. Not nice.

Our advise would be that the hotel is ONLY for clients between the age of 15 and 25

We stayed there for two nights and we were very satisfied with hotel offer. They have big swimming pool and playground for children. Hotel is very big, we stayed in a room with four balcony! Hotel is right in front of the beach. At the reception ask for the room with sea view. Breakfast is standard, nothing special.

I had a week at the Hotel Olympia in May. The hotel is in a good location next to the beach and within easy walking distance of the centre of Vodice with its shops, bars and restaurants.

The hotel has a modern building with good facilities. The restaurant has buffet service which is expected for the number of people it caters for. All of the staff I met were friendly and helpful.

A tip for people who wish to book drinks, etcetera to their room bill is to tell the waiter or bar staff at the time of ordering the drink.

The hotel is located right next to the beach in Vodice. The hotel is large with very good rooms and very clean. A good swimming pool with of beds and umbrellas. There are two areas which require attention, the first is the food, while plenty of it the quality needs improvement and attention paid to the temperature of the food. The second gripe would be the noise from the bar especially if you room overlooked the swimming pool. Apart from these two items we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Forget about overlooking the pool and go for a garden room.

We recently spent three nights at the Olympia as part of a Riviera tour. The hotel is large and rather rambling. On the night of our arrival the main dining room was closed for a wedding and guests were served in a small adjacent room which got extremely crowded. The celebrations went on well into the early hours and some of our party were kept awake – not funny for those who had a very early start to catch their flight. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, but each block is served by just one small lift – not sufficient when guests are arriving/departing with their luggage. Food in the dining room, served buffet style, was good, but the selection, particularly of fresh fruit, significantly lessened throughout our stay, after a wonderful start. In fact one morning, five minutes after the dining room opened, all the fruit (except for tinned fruit salad) had gone. Drinks are very reasonably priced for a 4* hotel. The hotel is a short walk to Vodice and can be reached by walking through the gardens, down to the beach and then along to the centre. There is an attractive swimming pool but the weather wasn’t good enough to tempt us!

Room Tip: Aim for a lower floor in case you have to carry up your luggage!

It's a 4 star hotel situated about 20 minute walk from the center of the Vodice town. You can visit lots of interesting and beautiful destinations from Vodice, like Zadar, Šibenik, Krka waterfalls etc.

The hotel is qute big, very beautiful, the personel is kind. The rooms are quite spacious, with big balcony. They have free wi-fi, air conditon, Sat TV (LCD), mini bar. The bathroom had a beautiful shower and a hair drier.
The food was good and with lot of choise. We have had a full buffet, there was a little less choise for lunch, because not too many people eat it. For breakfast and dinner there was much more too choose from. The one thing I didn't like a lot was, that there were not enough children chairs and if you got one it was not that clean. Also, if you don't like to eat in the company,there were not many tables for 4 persons, most of them were for 8-10 persons. So because of a very big crowd especially at dinner time, you almost never sit at your own table.

The hotel has it's own wellness and fitness, an big outdoor swimming pool with fresh water and a small one for children. There is also one bar, a gift shop and and small turist agency that can organize trips for you.

The beach is very cloes, about 50 m, it's beautiful, with small stones, teh water is clean. The sun-beds and umbrelas are free at the swimming pool, but you have to pay for them on the beach, and they are quite expensive, about 30 € / day.
There are some bars on the beach, a restaurant,stands with fruit, pancakes and souvenirs.
There are also some water slides and a water jet rental. During the high season there are some children trains, of course not for free.

The location of the hotel is really good, close to the sea, away from the city but not too far for a walk. If you don't want to walk, you can go to the city by a road train, that goes from the hotel every 20 minutes. It's not that cheap and you also have to pay for children.

The hotel has it's own supervised parking, but you have to pay 5 €/ day for it.

Anyhow....the hotel is beautiful and the town of Vodice is wonderful, what I really missed is, that there were not many children playgrounds nearby, there was not a lot of tree shadow and that even if we were there on the first week of September it was quite crowded....I've heard that it's almost impossible to walk in August.
